VERY nice guy. However, he has a monotone voice that tends to get off topic, which is why it is hard to learn from him. Minimal work is rewuired in that class, and honestly choose worthington over chase anyday. Youll thank me. Tests are hard and you will feel unprepared, but the curve in ap makes it impossible to get a bad grade

Ok.
So a lot of people think Mr. Worthington is ridicuously boring. And sometimes, he is.
But he is literally one of the smartest teachers in the entire building. If you have a question, he almost always has an answer.
He is pretty well rounded and is fun to talk to one on one. Grades are super easy to get and if you are having trouble, he loves to help. 10/10 great dude

Mr. Worthington...sucks. He is honestly impossible to learn from or understand. He has this really vague form of teaching that doesn't make any sense. Plus, his tests are fricken impossible and only one of his students is given a 100

Most people think hes boring and doesnt teach much, but sometimes his monotone voice is deceiving. He is the best history teacher i have ever had. He gives a very insightful view on history and goes above and beyond the required curriculum. He is a very nice person and has a good sence of humor. You would be lucky to have him.
